Emmis' rhythmic/WQHT (Hot 97) radio station is launching an hourly news program, "The Hot 97 News Update." Miss Info, the station's entertainment news reporter and weekend driver, is heading up the department and will air hourly updates from 10am to 5pm. The program kicks off May 15.

"Throughout the day we hear things in hip-hop," said Miss Info. "And we want people to hear from us first!"

"We're adding to our dynamic," said PD, EBRO. "A lot of people know us for our personalities, but now they'll know us for news."
